The Latino and Latin American Studies Program (LLAS) is a vibrant interdisciplinary unit devoted to cutting-edge research, teaching, and community engagement. The LLAS minor provides students with broad, interdisciplinary training in the economic, social, political, and cultural realities of Chicano, Latino, and Latin American peoples. The minor will be extremely valuable for those pursuing careers in business, government, social work, law and justice, and teaching that require engagement with Latinx communities in the United States, as well as for those who wish to travel and work in Latin America. Moreover, the Latino and Latin American studies minor may also serve as preparation for graduate study in multiple academic or professional fields.
